WT Docket No. 16-239
NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULEMAKING
Adopted: July 27, 2016 Released: July 28, 2016
Comment Date: (60 days after date of publication in the Federal Register)
Reply Comment Date: (90 days after date of publication in the Federal Register)
By the Commission:
1. In this Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), we propose, in response to a petition for
rulemaking filed by the American Radio Relay League, Inc. (ARRL),1 to amend Part 97 of the
Commission�s Rules regarding technical standards applicable to data communications that may be
transmitted in the Amateur Radio Service. Specifically, we propose to remove limitations on the symbol
rate (also known as baud rate)�the rate at which the carrier waveform amplitude, frequency, and/or
phase is varied to transmit information2�applicable to data emissions in certain amateur bands. We
believe that this rule change will allow amateur service licensees to use modern digital emissions, thereby
better fulfilling the purposes of the amateur service and enhancing its usefulness.

your station a Ham Station or just a super pricey SWL listening post?
